When you love someone, you say their name different. Like it's safe inside your mouth.
When you love someone you let them take care of you.
Love meant jumping off a cliff and trusting that a certain person would be there to catch you at the bottom.
If we don't change the direction we are headed, we will end up where we are going.
The scariest thing in the world is thinking someone you love is going to die.
You know it's never fifty-fifty in a marriage. It's always seventy-thirty, or sixty-forty. Someone falls in love first. Someone puts someone else up on a pedestal. Someone works very hard to keep things rolling smoothly; someone else sails along for the ride.
I'm lonely. Why do you think I had to learn to act so independent? I also get mad too quickly, and I hog the covers, and my second toe is longer than my big one. My hair has it's own zip code.
